I said ascension team, thats the new mibr roster

Hate to break it to you but thats a realistic possibility lol

posted 1 month ago

Would this be a good ascension team? Im just trying to think of what free agents could play together on a goated team

Babybay - main duelist/entry (goated entry, surprised hes not in franchising)
Dicey - chamber (same as babybay, solid chamber player in this meta and honestly has played sm roles he could realistically be decent at anything)
Nismo - flex (i feel like he could take on other roles as needed, he seems like a versatile player)
Marved - controller (contender for best controller in the world)
Zander (IGL) - initiator/secondary controller (with Harbour and map changes coming in, i genuinely think double controller setups could be valid. Plus, Zander has been playing more initiator lately
Coach - idrk, maybe Immi from V1? Dont know many

Second option: I vaguely remember hearing that babybay has IGLed before? Maybe theres a world where we sub trent in for Zander and babybay igls, idk.

Now its not perfect but i feel like theyve got some solid firepower there. Curious to hear your thoughts.

I think there's a lot of talent out there, it just comes down to will the orgs be able to provide a solid backbone and structure to let them develop into a formidable force.

Biggest disadvantage for Pacific that I can see rn is team synergy and lack of talent concentration, if that makes sense. A lot of NA and EMEA rosters are going to still have cores, players who used to play together, or even players that play ranked together, so they might adjust more easily than Asian teams who are scrambling to get the best talent.

Also like you said, asian teams just need to build competent rosters that will work well together and who have good coaching support and IGLs.

Best of luck to them though!! Im looking forward to see what happens

Since their debut in the first reyjkavik tourney in 2021, ive absolutely loved sacy and saadhak. Theyre just the most humble, kind dudes and for them to win champs with some other amazing players... its awesome to see!!!

Can we wait to see 100T vs TGRD before making this list??

Sure, i could see them beating c9

Sorry i didnt realize

Theres one more game in the SA lcq between Furia and TBK to determine the final spot for champs (for SA). If TBK wins, that means there will be THREE LATAM teams at champions

I feel like this is the consequence of having 2 lcq spots for SA... bruh latam could have the same number of spots as EMEA, NA, and SEA :/ doesnt make much sense to me

Edit: im stupid and thought tbk was LATAM LMAO

posted 3 months ago

LMAO this is exactly why sentinels and their fans get sm hate. No, sentinels is not the third best team in the tournament. They had a decent showing for the situation they were in but its not certain they could beat C9 or faze

They have potential tho

Imo Balla is fine. Sure hes not screaming into the mic or hyping up certain plays as much, but hes fine to listen to, and he does ingame analysis which is interesting to listen to

I would say tho that there are better options for champions, but i dont mind him and doug in NA

posted 3 months ago

Honestly true, and with such close competition, having the final on LAN would be a better way of determining whos actually better

posted 3 months ago

Ive been supporting both teams for a longggg time but i cant expect u to know that so all good :)

posted 3 months ago

Yeah im really curious too, just didnt want to mention because I feel like people are really divided over there :/

Im excited for both latam and brazil tho, and i hope they bring something exciting to champions

posted 3 months ago

Im so happy because my fav teams from both regions, m3c and the guard, are finally looking good and have both made it to their respective lcq final

Whether u like them or not, u have to admit both m3c and the guard are some of the most entertaining to watch

And then on top of that, edward gaming r looking great, wow what a good time for valorant

(Yes im aware no one asked for my opinion but here it is nonetheless)

I mean 100T is pretty new too, not a terrible showing but they def gonna make changes moving into franchising

all fun and games until the 2025 valorant champions finals comes around, SEN (tenz, shroud, tarik, asuna, bcj) vs Bleed Esports (cned, nats, forsaken, jingg, mindfreak). 4.5 million peak viewership. Tenz drops 150 kills

posted 3 months ago

I mean, its just smart of sentinels

Its not 100% impossible for them to lose lcq with him, even tho its not likely

He brings a ton of clout but also respect/experience to the team

Regardless if he sticks around hes making sentinels more interesting to watch imo

Just hope she doesnt get any weird ppl hitting her up or making her uncomfortable. The desk is good tho

I like wyatt river (from platchat). Smaller stream, hes funny, and has guests like vansili, mikeshd, and bren

In the end it will come down to performance on the day of and team synergy

posted 3 months ago

Im sorry you feel that way.

Dont give up tho, the valorant scene and meta is always changing and as we've seen from previous tournaments, underdogs always have a chance to outperform expectations

Just keep supporting your region and up and coming talent, and look forward to good games!

And on the note of taking ur own life, please don't. Please try to find someone to talk to if you can, or just get off the internet and go for a run or take some time for urself <3 stay safe

Honestly, ik ppl are gonna downfrag me but i dont think Will should be replaced yet

Will has done well in the past and i know that the meta can change, but i feel like he should be given some time to prove himself especially during a nerfed-chamber meta (coming soon hopefully)

Also its RLY hard for him to put up insane numbers when hes got insane talent on his team, similar to d3ffo on prime gambit

I dont think hes doing good, i expect more impact from him. But give him time and dont jump to conclusions

posted 3 months ago

I dont hate him, but from what ive seen hes bottom fragged the past 5 matches while playing as duelist/chamber? Idk seems like youd want more impact out of him but i dont watch the games, maybe hes doing something different

So many braindead takes going around

I just saw some NA fans arguing with some APAC fans abt whos worse?? NA will be like "we have 2 first places, one 2nd and one 3rd!!!" Bruh thats just Optic winning lmao doesnt mean our region is "miles ahead" of apac

Also ppl getting mad at NA viewership on popular games like SEN and 100T claiming that ppl from na "dont care abt the game and only their fav streamer"... yeah and?? Whats wrong with ppl watching a team/players they like lmao, some ppl just like to watch some valorant and cheer on a person they like

Just enjoy the games and if u rly care that much abt "the best region", "who owns who", wait for champs

posted 3 months ago

Quick moment to say that no matter what the outcome is, this is a banger finals and both teams are playing top tier valorant

Both teams should be proud and i cant wait to watch this 5th map!!

Derke doesnt drop 30 bombs for one series: "hes a fraud".

Calm down, lets just appreciate paper rex and their players instead of always trying to put down other people

Derke is a really nice guy and super strong player

I agree. Also banter is fun and all, but I feel like it's taken too far on vlr to the point where it's not fun and people are genuinely upset

All very exciting matches, I would also like to see Loud vs Fnatic because theres some top tier talent on either team and it'll come down to how prepped each team is

Idk man, personally I think they just weren't ready yet to beat more powerful teams

posted 5 months ago

I think Gambit in their prime was the best team we have seen.

People saying Sentinels (to me) are wrong. Just because you went undefeated doesn't mean you would go undefeated now. Their first Masters win was impressive, albeit it was against significantly weaker competition than today or any recent international event for that matter.

And no I'm not an avid Sen hater, nor do I think they weren't a formidable foe. I just think that they weren't as drilled and as powerful as other teams later on.
